By MARY CLARE JALONICK WASHINGTON (AP) — “This is how I’m going to die, defending this entrance.” Capitol Police Officer Aquilino Gonell told House investigators Tuesday he could feel himself losing oxygen as he was crushed by rioters – supporters of then-President Donald Trump – as he was defending the Capitol during the Jan. 6 insurrection.

Trump’s lawsuit brings needed scrutiny to Big Tech

Last month, Facebook’s “oversight board” announced that the company would bar former president Donald Trump from the social media network’s platforms for two years, which by total coincidence is exactly one congressional election cycle. At that point, the board said, it will consider whether the nation has the same levels of “violence, restrictions on peaceful assembly, and other markers of civil unrest.” The board’s evaluation of American society’s stability will determine whether the 45th pres...

A right to repair and a wish for simplicity

When I heard about a “Right to Repair” executive order from the president, I was all for it — this theoretical thing. It’s easy for any of us to understand from where comes the impetus for such a proposal in the current  age of stuff. After eons of making stuff and just plain having stuff, we are used to ownership equaling the right to tinker. If you are handy, that is. If I had a hammer, I would be likely to make matters worse. “Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance” was not written about m...

Unlikely partners Cheney, Pelosi team up for Jan. 6 probe

By Lisa Mascaro | Associated Press WASHINGTON — When Nancy Pelosi raised a glass to Liz Cheney, it was the most unlikely of toasts. Democratic lawmakers and the Republican congresswoman were gathered in the House speaker’s office as the group prepared for the first session of the committee investigating the Jan. 6 insurrection at the Capitol.

Kay Ivey on Thursday called out “the unvaccinated folks” for the rise in Covid-19 cases in her state, a remarkable plea at a time when many GOP leaders are refusing to urge people to get vaccinated even as Covid-19 cases surge in many parts of the country. “Folks are supposed to have common sense.

Free money for all? Garcetti hopes guaranteed income test brings big change

By Tammy Webber and Emily Swanson | Associated Press Most Americans who haven’t been vaccinated against COVID-19 say they are unlikely to get the shots and doubt they would work against the aggressive delta variant despite evidence they do, according to a new poll that underscores the challenges facing public health officials amid soaring infections in some states.

Woke words, dim minds

Have you noticed how our language is changing? At a congressional hearing on “Birthing While Black,” nearly every politician used the words “birthing people” instead of “women” or “mothers.” Asked why, Shalanda Young, President Joe Biden’s budget director, said, “Our language needs to be more inclusive.” Activists have also changed “equality” to “equity” and “affirmative action” to “diversity.” The Associated Press no longer uses “mistress.” It tells reporters to use “companion, friend or lover....
